A mistake that many people make is either staying with the same program far too long or throwing the towel in way too early. Using the same exercises, reps, tempo and exercise order for months on end. If you do this, the rate at which your progress will slow start to dip and eventually you'll hit a plateau.

The Art Of Effective Training Progression
With so much information out there on how to build muscle, it is very understandable that knowing what will work best for your physique can be confusing. When we are in the initial consultation stages with our bodybuilding personal training clients, a common problem that many of them face is not being able to get their muscles to grow.
For muscles to grow there are a few things we need to pay close attention when training in the gym. Our muscles are built up of different fibre types, depending on the fibre build up of a particular muscle, you may want to select specific reps to challenge that muscle effectively. Within an effective muscle building program, you will want to use specific rep and sets at different periods throughout your training plan.
How many and how much?
We know how important it is to use various rep schemes and the rate of which to progress our clients. There are many ways of progressing a program in order to build muscle mass, but these methods should be in sequence depending on how experienced the trainee is. An example of progression to help build muscle could be to increase the load, adjust the reps and adapt the sets. Please note that you would only do all three if you’re at the advanced stages of training.
Why change your rep ranges?
Working with different rep ranges allow you to target different muscles fibres and stimulate a wider ranger of motor units. Lower reps will target your fast twitch fibres and higher reps will stimulate your slow twitch muscle fibres. Varying your reps will ensure you target all muscle fibres and will help your biceps grow.
What makes Muscles grow?
Progressive overload – Over time you need to make your training harder and more challenging
Muscles need reasons to grow, in order for adaptation to take place your muscles need to be challenged. To improve your strength and size you need to progressively challenge you body with heavier weights. Our personal trainers are very good at know when to increase the wight on the bar and by how much. Your workouts need to be hard enough to challenge your muscles and then need to be progressed over a period of time for muscles to grow.
This is also referred to as time under tension, when training with weights the period time that your muscles are under tension will also be a factor in muscle hypertrophy. This points us back to our earlier point of ensuring the right rep rages are used when trying to build muscle. When putting our clients through their paces on the gym floor, our Bodybuilding personal trainer London programs place huge emphasis on exercise tempo.
Have you ever heard of the term muscle pump? This is where there is lots of blood flow to a muscle which causes you to look and feel bigger. This stretching of the muscle is also a factor in muscle building over a period of time which is why bodybuilders are always chasing the pump.
Have you ever felt sore after a tough workout?
When you train muscles get broken down and grow back bigger and stronger as long as you are fuelled with the right nutrients, you’re eating enough and factor in sufficient recovery. When setting out clients up on a 12 week program or however long it may take, we pay close attention to rest, recovery and nutrition.
Nutrition to build muscle
For muscle to grow you need to consume enough calories; not just any calories, you need to ensure to take on the correct about of carbohydrates and protein. The number of calories you need will vary from person to person, the amount to train and your body type will play a vital role in how we go about setting up your nutrition. The Bodybuilding personal trainer London take into consideration all of these factors before prescribing any nutrition plan.

Tirrel fulfilled two important qualities I had set out to find in a trainer:
he is someone who has achieved an excellent physique himself and so knows exactly what it takes to achieve the transformative change I wanted
- he is someone who could motivate me to push myself without just being shouty or militaristic, but could listen and understand me as an individual
From the first meeting with Tirrel I felt completely confident that I was starting my journey with the right person. He is extremely friendly and engaging, full of energy but also very perceptive and focused on what you want to achieve and what might be your personal pitfalls that could stand in the way of achieving it. After a detailed analysis of my lifestyle, fitness levels and goals, he set about creating an initial programme including nutrition and supplement plan and we began meeting twice a week for some challenging but extremely enjoyable sessions.
I saw visible improvements within just a few weeks and before long decided to increase the intensity to three sessions, buoyed by the burst of energy and positivity I gained from the results and from the genuine fun I had each time I trained with Tirrel. He has a fantastic sense of humour and can get you into the right headspace for a good session even on occasions where you were having a bad day before arriving.
After a year of training with Tirrel, I was in the best shape that I had ever been in and discovered that I could achieve results I had always felt may be beyond my reach. If you are looking for a trainer who can help you achieve more than you thought possible and someone who makes the whole process enjoyable rather than something to endure, then I would urge you to contact Tirrel Grant, before someone else books your slot in his schedule!”
